Just an aspect that hasn't gotten enough attention according to me. I listened to the album intensely last night, and the amazingness of this album totally hit me ... There was some idiot on this forum earlier claiming the bass doesn't get enough space in Opeth, well he hasn't listened to Watershed in the right way then! Mendez does an amazing job on this one. It very rarely just follows the guitars, instead it's being used very creatively, has many improvised variations throughout all the songs, has it's own basslines to play, and is a vital part of the basic structure of all songs on the album. Great work Mendez!
